To fine ANYONE for showing pride in their native American heritage is a crime and also a gross insult to the US Constitution!! The school board should publicly apologize to this lovely girl, immediately remove any fine, and hang their heads in abject shame!!! They seem to forget to whom America belonged before the voracious and greedy rape of the land by outsiders!!!
Well said, Sir
Well said Terry,... I will second that!
The entire school board/administrators should be recalled/fired from their positions!!!
I agree With Billy Wolf
Agree with you Billy.
Agree Billy Wolf
In this country we are taught to be proud of our heritage, unless your Native American. This hypocrisy needs to end....
Madam Jamardhan, very glad I sign the petition. School council to recommend to eliminate discriminatory fee.
Janardhan invited you to sign this petition.
What I am reading here seems like knee-jerk reactions to something we probably know little about. A graduation is not about one individual.....what if the skin heads wanted to show their national pride. That could be very disrupting. Sometimes, you have to give those who make the rules the benefit of doubt until you know what you are talking about. Maybe, there is a history we don't know about concerning this?
I was so pleased to hear that the asshat headmaster got fired.
The School Board must rescind this exorbitant and blatantly unfair fine. They should make a public apology to Chelsey and all of the students. Their actions show disrespect to First Nation people and to all students, faculty, and families present, saying that the individual student and his/her heritage does not matter, only uniformity in external dress. What does THAT teach...that what one wears is more important than what is in one's mind?!
I wonder what would have happened if this had been an African-American student expressing herself because of her heritage? I bet there would have been no fine!
If there would have been, Afro-American thugs would have destroyed the school belongings and staged protests.
You are right Chelsey, this is not a crime, it is your right and I am proud of you being attached to your heritage as true American......
I hope this gets resolved in Chelsey's favor.
